About

Rup Sidhu is an interdisciplinary artist and facilitator residing on the unceded territories of  the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh and Tsleil-Waututh nations (Vancouver BC.)  As a facilitator, Rup’s work meets at the intersection of social justice and the arts. For the past 25 years he has been growing his understanding and leading workshops based in anti-oppression and liberation-based practices.  He has facilitated and taught programs in universities, public schools, youth prisons, and communities throughout Canada, USA, UK and India.  Rup brings a focused presence, strong leadership skills and a contagious enthusiasm, which effectively engages, inspires and guides participants through his process oriented work. 

 

As an artist Rup’s award winning work reflects his upbringing and is a cultural hybrid of expressions moving through music, film, poetry and visual art engaging with mythos, memory, justice and fantasy. The richly imaginative visual textures to his sound design have found kinship in the theatre, film and dance worlds, where he has been celebrated by multiple Jessie and Leo award nominations. He believes in art’s ability to reimagine futures, to repurpose aesthetic freedoms toward civil and environmental justice. His distinct approach uses traditional and emergent artistic practices to create work that express the vast spectrum of the human experience.
